PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) While gyms have been given the green light to reopen Monday across West Virginia, they’ll be doing so under modified rules in accordance with guidelines put in place by Gov. Jim Justice.

The rules include:

- Gyms may only hold up to 40 percent of fire building occupancy at once.
- Social-distancing guidelines are to be implemented, which not only includes members staying at least 6 feet apart, but machines being placed at least that far apart as well.
- Both employees and members must wear appropriate personal protective equipment while inside.
- Facilities within, which include showers, locker rooms, swimming pools, and basketball courts should remain closed.

Meanwhile, Planet Fitness announced on Friday that it will keep its gyms in the state closed for the time being.
